Penguin Awareness Day

Clown Logo of Karnival Costumes your Halloween specialists for Fancy Dress and Costume Accessories
Everyone is naturally captivated and enchanted by the social, tuxedo-like creatures that form themselves into huge groups, known as rookeries, during their breeding season. The noise from all the calls they make when returning to these rookeries during the breeding season to locate their mates and their own chicks is amazing and if experienced, never forgotten.   
 
Penguin Awareness Day is a unique opportunity for us all to get to know more about these aquatic, flightless and snow-loving birds.  And we know there’s love out there because our superb collection of penguin fancy dress is one of the most popular we’ve got and fascinatingly the costumes are just as popular with adults as they are with children! 
 
Penguin Awareness Day is celebrated annually on the 20 of January although given the rave reviews given to the recent TV Christmas advertising campaign you’d have thought it was earlier! And can there be a better excuse to plan your own penguin themed party or a trip to the zoo with the children.
 
And to get you into the mood for Penguin Awareness Day, here are some great Penguin facts;
 
  • The largest penguin species is the Emperor Penguin and endemic to Antarctica. They reach a height of about 45inches and a weight of between 60 and 90 lbs.
  • On the other end of the scale, the smallest species is the Blue Penguin which is also known as the Fairy penguin. They only grow about 16 inches tall and weigh about 2.2 lbs (1 kg).
  • The species with the highest population is the Macaroni penguin or Crested penguin while the species with the lowest is the endangered Galapagos penguin.
  • Their diet includes fish, krill and squid. Generally, those that are near the equator eat more fish whilst those near to Antarctica eat more krill and squid.
  • Up to 75 % of their lives and all their hunting are spent in the water.
  • Penguins are social birds because most of them feed, nest and swim in groups.
 
Penguin Awareness Day Celebration
 
Now you could take your children to the zoo or sit down as a family and watch Happy Feet Here, Surf Up or even watch a documentary on these charming and adorable creatures or alternatively, you could throw a costume party! You could create a fish themed menu including fish, shrimps or even sushi if you want. Definitely no Penguin biscuits because that would almost be cannibalism! Send out some penguin inspired invitations and make sure that everyone comes in fancy dress.
